Fine Art

The beautiful materials: glass, marble, ceramic and porcelain, and the permanence they offer have made mosaics a contemporary art form that is found as decorative and functional works in residences, businesses and public art installations. This art form that started out as flooring, walkways and story telling murals on ceilings and walls has been around for centuries and is one of the most long-lived forms of art in existence and has become a major voice in fine art today.
